Cato Institute New Media Lunch: “The Republican Problem”

This post is a reminder about tomorrow’s new media lunch at the Cato Institute.

This year’s election served as a shock to Republicans, and now they’re scratching their heads trying to figure out what went wrong. With more Americans expressing viewpoints consistent with personal liberty — including marijuana legalization and support for gay marriage — the conservative movement, which makes up a chunk of the Republican-base, must now adapt to the changing political atmosphere or continue to suffer at the ballot box.

So what is a path forward for the Republican Party? In short, they need to become more libertarian. Tomorrow, our friends at the Cato Institute will host a new media lunch, featuring a panel on this very subject at its Washington, DC campus.

Panelists will include:

  • Walter Olson, Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute
  • Alex Nowrasteh, Immigration Policy Analyst at the Cato Institute
  • Jason Pye, Editor at United Liberty (that’s me!)
  • Rob Kampia, Executive Director at the Marijuana Policy Project

The event begins at noon and will run until 1:30pm. Zachary Graves, Director of New Media at the Cato Institue, will moderate the discussion.
